Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has been delayed again but this time, the date is final.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was announced in 2014, with an early 2016 release date, but midway through last year, the studio pushed back release to January 2017 “to hone some of the details to make sure Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is exceptional.”

Fast forward a few months to October and news of another delay popped up, with the release date being scheduled for April 4.

In a press release today, the studio announced that the title needs a further few weeks after receiving feedback from the beta.

“We’ve worked tirelessly creating a whole new Sniper Ghost Warrior experience set in an ambitiously crafted open world new to the series,” said said Marek Tyminski, CEO of CI Games.

“While it’s an unfortunate decision to delay the game one last time, we believe these final changes will result in a better experience for players worldwide on day one. Thank you for your patience – we know the wait will be worth it.”

Third time’s the charm, chaps.

Look out for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 when it finally hits shelves on April 25, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

    Well at least it’s still April, but I don’t understand why would they postpone it. I think that the game was OK during the beta tests

    • DannyB

      You’re right. The game was OK during the beta tests and they want to make it AWESOME. If 3 weeks is what it takes I don’t mind. Keep on mind that there were some bugs during beta tests

      • Fatty

        I think that the only issue the game had was the optimization. What are some of the bugs that you have experienced?

        • DannyB

          There were some problems with a few animations and some people mentioned something about shadows quality. I am sure that they will fix it all by the time SGW 3 is released

  • turas88

    It;s only three weeks, it could be worse. But I think that if CIG need time to fix all bugs or implement few changes, that better for us, gamers

    • Maldy

      I completely agree with you. I really don’t mind playing it 3 weeks later but i hope that multiplayer and co-op will be available right from the first day

    • hooker

      I think so too. It could be worse. And I’m waiting for this game since the beginning of 2016, so I can wait 3 extra weeks.

  • DannyB

    I think that the optimization is the biggest issue. Other than that there were some minor bugs and I am glad to here that they decided to delay it in order to fix everything

    • Robert

      That’s right. Of course they could have release it already and give us bilions of ptches, but it wouldn’t be fair, right?

  • Maldy

    I hoped that I’d play this game on 4th April but I’ll wait for it only a bit over a month. They have uploaded this new awesome winter gameplay on yt and I love it!

    • Fatty

      • moreThanZero666

        Do you think about this trailer ? Actually as I remember there was one gameplay, slaughterhouse ? oh no! there was one more. capture this outpost, right ?

        • DannyB

          Hey thanks for linking the trailer man! Could you please provide a link for the gameplay you mention.I did see the slaughterhouse gameplay a few weeks back but I didn’t see ‘capture the outpost’

        • Robert

          This tralier is simply amazing, the best SGW series so far. I hope they won’t delay the game anymore, because I’m having really hard time now :)

        • hooker

          I love the story and it’s great they’ve shared this trailer. Until now we didn’t no a thing about the story in SGW3.

  • Robert

    • hooker

      This is great. Side missions will make Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 even longer :) Although I’m pretty sure I will play this game few Times to check out different styles.

    • Maldy

      I am glad to see that this hardcore mode will be available in SGW 3. This is something for me!
